About 1,500 people of many ethnic groups and many faiths gathered at 44th and Central in North Minneapolis to rally in support of the Palestinian people on the day Israel invaded Gaza with army troops. The death toll at that time was estimated at 274 Palestinians, mostly children and women and two Israelis. The rally was organized by the Anti-War Committee.
There was a counter protest of Israel supporters seeking cessation of the Hamas rocket assault.
